7:02 am
new zealand more two dozen coal miners trapped and no one knows if they're alive or dead. let's head to the news desk and erica hill. >> rescue efforts are under way in new zealand for the 27 coal miners missing after a mine explosion. the mine is on new zealand's south island about 180 miles southwest of wellington. it is the country's largest coal mine. a tunnel that runs horizontally into the side of a mountain. the explosion occurred about a mile from the entrance. >> there is some communication because the employee who did walk out first rang the surface and said that i've -- i believe there's been an explosion underground. >> there have not been any further communications with those missing miners. it is not yet clear if any of them survived. president obama is in portugal this morning for a nato summit, which will focus on afghanistan. air force one landed in lisbon just a short while ago. our senior white house correspondent bill plante is
7:03 am
there. bill, good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you, erica. the president you might say on a mission to restore his mo-jo, the primary mission of this meeting with nato, to talk about the troop strength in afghanistan. the president promised troops will start coming home next july and some will but the real deadline to end combat operations is now the end of 2014. and even after that, just like in iraq, there are going to be troops needed for training and for security and that's the help he wants from nato. but that's not all. the president comes here in a severely weakened position. but yesterday in a white house meeting, he doubled down in a meeting with former republican advisers of presidents by immediately. the republicans in congress it's a high-stakes gamble for a president in a precarious
7:04 am
position. erica? >> indeed. bill plante in lisbon this morning, thanks. while the president is in portugal the fed chairman is in italy. bernanke urged congress to approve more stimulus money for the u.s. economy and added a warning. >> on its current economic trajectory, the united states runs the risk of seeing millions of workers unemployed or under employed for many years. as a society, we should find that outcome unacceptable. >> republicans in congress are already on record as opposing more stimulus. on capitol hill, the full house of representatives must now decide whether to censure vent ran congressman charles rangel. before the ethics committee voted on it yesterday, the new york democrat shed a few tears then apologized. he was convicted this week of financial misconduct. there are new developments into the investigation of the murder of a high-powered publicist ronni chasen gunned
7:05 am
down in her car on sunset boulevard tuesday. a report that police think it may have been planned in advance. the motive however still unknown. police plan to view footage from multiple security cameras in the area. dave price has just a little time left in his "no way home" adventure so i'll do a bit of weather duty for you one last day. on the east coast look for plenty of sunshine from maine to florida. rain and snow, though, heading to the northwest again today. the mountains could see several inches of snow. be sure to bring a heavy coat in the northern plains, temperatures ranging from the
7:06 am
at six minutes past the hour that's your weather. now over to harry. >> the thanksgiving travel rush begins this weekend and this year along with the usual stress of flying. new security procedures are causing some extra worries. the denver post snapped these photos showing what airline passengers, some of them anyway, are going through these days, including enhanced patdown techniques which have sparked a rebellion by some flyers. the tsa administrator john pistole joins us from washington to explain what's going on. good morning, sir. >> good morning, harry. >> let's first talk about the new enhanced scanners that are in operation in some airports, spreading all over the country. and basically, what they do is you can kind of see everything,
7:07 am
at least the person who is viewing the scan can. and a lot of folks are saying, i'm not so interested in having a tsa examiner look at everything there is to see of me. >> right, harry. the number of issues involved here and, of course, this is the latest technology, we believe, to deal with the latest threats as we saw both on christmas day and as we saw recently with the cargo plot, the way that the terrorists particularly al qaeda and al qaeda in the arabian peninsula are focused on devices that can cause catastrophic results, bringing down an airliner. this technology is designed to provide the best possible security and also addresses issues from the standpoint of having an examiner in a separate area and sees an image, not a photograph, i've seen all kinds of things on tv and elsewhere that is not accurate. so, i think there is a lot of misinformation there. the bottom line is that security officer never sees a person and the security officer with the person never sees the image.
7:08 am
>> well then what ends up having you have certain pilots unions, people in pilots unions saying it's not healthy for me, i'll opt out. others feel it is too invasive, i'm going to opt out, so the new patdown techniques, which are not getting rave reviews, to say the least, how -- is there a way to do this that people won't feel that some people are basically feeling violated? >> it is a challenge, harry, no doubt. so what we're trying to do is address the latest intelligence about the threats we have. a couple with privacy issues people are rightfully concerned about. we've worked extensively with the pilots and think we have a good way forward with them and we'll be talking about later on as we explore different options. but, when it comes down to the patdown, actually very small number and small percentage of people will actually receive that patdown, if they opt out of the advanced imaging technology,
7:09 am
in those seven or so airports. we'll try to address the people such as the christmas day bomb, know knows the technology and says i won't go through that because of a non-metallic device and walk through a metal detector wouldn't pick. >> up last but not least, one of the issues people are saying you are violating my fourth amendment right which protects me against unlawful search and seizure. is there a way, in a sentence, to answer that? >> there are administrative authorities that give the department and tsa that authority. obviously, the bottom line is trying to ensure that everybody that gets on every flight can be assured with high confidence that everybody else on that screened. and i think, really, the bottom line, harry, is that as we look at the holiday season here and thanksgiving, everybody wants to get home to see family, to see friends, enjoy the holidays, and we ask it be a partnership between the traveling public and those in tsa, the men and women trying to protect you and your
7:10 am
loved ones. >> john pistole, we appreciate your time this morning. thank you. >> thank you, harry. her book is not in stores yet but you can still read part because excerpts have turned up online. as you might imagine, the author is not happy about that. cbs news correspondents nancy cordes is in washington with the story. good morning, nancy. >> reporter: good morning, mag gear, palin appears to go well beyond politics in her new book criticizing everything from popular tv shows to the first lady. >> let's restore america! >> reporter: less than a week before it is scheduled to go on sale sections of sarah palin's new book "america by heart, reflexes on family, faith and flag" have been leaked on internet and some of the topics she tackles may be surprising. >> we haven't really seen a lot of political criticism in this book so far, at least in the parts leaked to the media. it's mostly about things like "american idol" or levee johnston. >> i don't care what she did or where she was at. >> he's critical of him, the
7:11 am
unmarried father of her grandson for seeking publicity writing it was disgusting to watch as his 15 minutes of fame were exploited by supposed adults taking advantage of a lost kid. and takes on the tv show "american idol" writing that the contestants embarrass themselves for the benefit of producers. >> my name is bristol palin. >> of her daughter's role on reality tv she writes, she engaged in an uplifting, family-orient show called "dancing with the stars" to challenge herself in a new, fun way. >> sarah palin in many ways a creature of television sher self a contract on a cable news show, her daughter on a reality show and sarah palin has her own reality show she's compensated very well for. >> palin apparently is not pleased by the leaks. thursday night she tweeted: one thing that hasn't been leaked, any mention of palin's plans to run for president in
7:12 am
2012. but, of president obama, she does say he seems to believe it is an unjust, unequal country. she even take as swipe at michelle obama dredging up that comment of being proud of the country for the first time when her husband started winning elections. this will be pretty provocative stuff, nancy. >> it already is. thank you. 7:12, back to harry. >> the latest from london, there could be an announcement this morning on where prince william and kate middleton will be married. as we wait there, are new details coming out on their wedding plans and cbs news correspondent elizabeth palmer is outside buckingham palace with the latest. good morning. >> reporter: hi, harry. yeah, new details on all their plans. as the royal couple is probably really coming to grips for the first time with the cost of their mega-celebrity. prince william had said he wanted to keep details of the place where he popped the
7:13 am
question secret, private. well, that lasted all of three days. the "sun" newspaper this morning actually prints a photo of the cabin in africa where it happened, with close-ups of the room, the bed, and even what the couple wrote in the guest book. as for the actual venue for the wedding, well that's still a mystery. though probably not for long. serious contenders are st. paul's cath dra, maybe windsor castle and bookies even taking joke odds on london's football stadium. but, westminster abbey seems to be the clear public favorite. >> i think it should be at westminster abbey because i think that's traditional and that's where it's been for many years. >> it's a church, the cathedral, all the cornations have taken place, i think from a historical perspective i think it should be the place. >> the abbey is certainly big enough t. seats 2,000 people in its splendid stone interior. >> cornations take place there. funerals take plays -- funeral services take place there, royal marriages take place there and i
7:14 am
think it's very important that we maintain another traditional in the united kingdom wo our royal family. >> reporter: meanwhile the rebranding of kate middleton has begun. the palace wants us to start calling her catherine. she's lining up her role and her family's party supply business and preparing to enter public life, even before the wedding, accompanying prince william on the official and charity visits that are such a large part of the royal job description. now, of course, bated breath everywhere, hoping to find out where the wedding is going to take place and the news could come today. at least that's what we're hoping. harry? >> elizabeth palmer in london this morning, right in front of the palace, we thank you very much. appreciate it. maggie? >> thank you, harry. at home, nearly six months now since second grader kyron horman disappeared in portland, oregon, still no trace of him n. recent days, investigators have scoured wooded areas, they've even put on wetsuits to search for
7:15 am
evidence under water. on thursday, kyron's father spoke with our national correspondent, jeff glor, who joins us this morning from port landing. jeff, good morning. >> reporter: maggie, good morning to you. the wall of hope remains here but as you mentioned nearly six months after kyron went missing this case has clearly strained police, the community and this week, especially, his family. when kyron horman went missing june 4th, his biological parents were no longer together but they always stood together. >> i don't know that i'm getting through it. >> reporter: that changed when desare young sharply criticized her ex-husband kaine this week. indicating he withheld information before kyron disappeared before the danger kyron's step-mom posed. young now says terri horman had a severe hatred for kyron and she could have hurt him in the worst possible way. some of the comments she made this week clearly got a lot of
7:16 am
attention. >> uh-huh. >> did they surprise you? >> i wouldn't say that they surprised me. this has been going on for so long, we're all just emotionally strung out. >> what they both agree on is that terri is responsible for kyron's disappearance and though terri is not talking this past week dive teams searched underwater for the first time, volunteers have scour ad nearby island. still, nothing. how much do you worry that people will forget? >> i worry about it all the time. we went out yesterday to one of the local malls and passed out flyers to the businesses and a couple comments, oh, i thought he was home already. and that just reaffirmed that we got to keep getting it out there. >> reporter: while searching, kaine horman also holds down a full-time job and acts as a single parents to 2-year-old kiara. >> how challenging is all of that for you? >> it's a heavy load but you just step up. >> reporter: kiara longs for her
7:17 am
missing brother. >> she has me sit next to her and read a book while she reads a book because her companion's not there. the first holiday season coming up, have you thought about how you'll handle that? do you try to not think about that at all? >> it's difficult. i miss him the say every day, whether it's thanksgiving holiday or just a tuesday. it doesn't change. >> reporter: at the end of our interview kaine turned unexpectedly to the camera addressing his son directly. >> yeah, we love you very much. we're still looking for you. every day. home is safe. it's just kiara and i and we're waiting for you. >> reporter: he says the last time he spoke to terri horman was in late june and has to plans to see her again, except in court. maggie? >> jeff glor in portland, oregon thank you for that story, jeff. still ahead this morning, another high-profile disappearance may be closer to being solved. we may finally know the answer of what happened to natalee
7:18 am
holloway because after five and a half years a piece of bone may provide some answers. we'll talk to a dna expert about the ongoing investigation. >> also ahead this morning, good shopping advice to help you trim the cost of thanksgiving dinner. you know, the price of turkey has gone up? a lot. we'll tell you how to do it on "the early show."

a great crowd on hand. a lot of people there because they want to see dave make it across the finish line. we'll get to that in just a bit as we welcome you back to "the early show." coming up, a little thanks sgifg sticker shock. if you have been online and just sort of been thinking about, okay, are we ready to buy the bird yet? the price -- the average price of turkey has gone up about 30% in the last year. even the price of onions is up. there's all kinds of stuff, the price gouging and who knows what else going out there. but there are ways to save money on your holiday feast. we'll tell you how to do that in just a little bit. >> but first, here this friday morning at 7:30 the latest on a
7:31 am
possible breakthrough in the natalee holloway case. forensic experts this morning are analyzing evidence that could finally tell us what happened to her. cbs news correspondents kelly cobiella is in miami this morning with the latest. good morning, kelly. >> reporter: good morning, maggie. they're actually comparing natalee's dental records to a jawbone it's believed to be human, female and it has a partially intact mo lar. this bone was found on a beach in aruba last week. and now, investigators are studying it to try to determine if the remains belong to natalee holloway. five years after natalee holloway vanished, investigators are chasing their most promising lead yet. according to a dutch newspaper, a jawbone found by tourists on a beach in aruba is being tested to determine if it's the remains of the missing u.s. teen. the bone reportedly contains at least one intact mo lar. dutch officials are asking hal wayeast family for copies of her dental records.
7:32 am
she disappeared during a senior class trip in 2005, last seen with joer ran van der slooth arrested twice in connection with her disappearance but never charge the. he is currently awaiting fril in a per vurveian prison for the murder of this 21-year-old. >> if this jawbone is natalee holloway's, aruban authorities will have grounds to extradite him. >> reporter: while he denied committing any crime in 2008 he confessed to murderingner a tv interview then later recanted calling himself a pathological liar. last summer a dutch tv crew taped beth holloway confronting him. >> it's not too late for you, goran, to get your life back. >> -- especially to gambling. i mean, that's why i've told --
7:33 am
>> reporter: experts say the jawbone could be enough evidence for investigators to finally tie him to hal way's death. prosecutors are going to go back through all of the statements and see if any of them match up to the location where this jawbone was found, see if he knew things that only the killer would know, if they have that, they have a strong case against him. >> reporter: dna tests on this bone are being done at the hague in the netherlands. investigators are not commenting on that accept to say that results could be released as early as next week, maggie. >> let's get an idea now what they might find. kelly cobiella in miami, thank you. joining us dr. larry cob lin ski, forensic pathologist and expert on dna analysis. good morning. >> pleasure. >> this is the jawbone here they did not reportedly find an attached jawbone but rather a small fragment with a mo lar attached. given it's been five years since she disappeared how much conclusive dna evidence would
7:34 am
you expect to find in the fragment and the mo lar. >> the good news is that dna can be extracted both from bone and from teeth. in fact, dna is present in the pulp cavity in the center of the mo lar. and that is good news because i don't think, from dental records alone, they will be able to identify the source of that fragment. i think the dna will definitively tell us if it is her or not. they can do that in a number of ways. they've got the biological parents' dna, they can do a paternity type test and could say to a degree of scientific zercht that it is either her or it's not her. >> this morning, they're already saying that they believe that it belongs to a young woman. does it surprise you that they're naming the gender already? >> yeah. i think it's certainly appropriate to say it comes from a young person. that can be established just based on the appearance of the teeth or the tooth. but, on the other hand, to do the gender, i think they would need to do dna analysis.
7:35 am
there is a genetic site called amalogen, which allows us to determine gender. >> aruba is a very dry, arid, windy climate. what would happen to a jawbone that was, you know, submerged in sand with the wind and the salt for five years? >> well, certainly, that's not a friendly environment, not for bone, certainly not for soft tissue and certainly for the for dna. on the other hand, the tooth really protects dna inside. so, i think, or at least i hope, that the dna be intact or at least good enough so that they could determine some results. i think the issue of a bone fragment is very important. how did it become a fragment? was there some kind of mechanical trauma? and what does it mean? can we learn anything from the fragment, especially the edges? are there tool marks? is there any information that could help us determine the cause of death. >> not only would you be able to
7:36 am
use it to identify her but also possibly find out what happened to her? >> it's quite possibly. this is hopefully the answer to a five-year-long mystery and still a lot of questions. >> let's say they do establish it belonged to natalee holloway. where does the investigation go from there? >> well, that's the good news. finally i were know she's really deceased and even more importantly you now have a crime scene. we never had a crime scene so we couldn't investigate thoroughly. and now, i think what they will do is search that area thoroughly to see if there are any other bone fragments or any other kind of information that could help us solve the case. >> dr. larry kobilinsky, thank you. very interesting. >> it's a pleasure.
7:37 am
up next, we know turkeys can't fly, but their prices sure can. they are soaring this year. we're going to tell you what you can do about it here on "the early show" on cbs. [growl] i met my husband here. i got to know my grandkids here. we've discovered so much here together. but my doctor told me that during that time my high cholesterol was contributing to plaque buildup in my arteries. that's why i'm fighting my cholesterol... with crestor. along with diet, crestor does more than help manage cholesterol, when diet and exercise alone aren't enough. crestor is also proven to slow plaque buildup in arteries. crestor is not right for everyone, like people with liver disease, or women who are nursing,
7:38 am
pregnant, or may become pregnant. simple blood tests will check for liver problems. tell your doctor about other medicines you are taking, or if you have muscle pain or weakness. that could be a sign of serious side effects. ask your doctor if crestor is right for you. i love it when we're here together. if you can't afford your medication, astrazeneca may be able to help. [thunder crashes] - i'm right here. and i always will be. - now you can surround her with the strength of love's embrace,

millions of americans shopping for thanksgiving turkeys this weekend. let us warn you turkeys are going to cost about a third more this year an year ago. to tell us why and how to save money on the bird and trim mings, amy goodman senior editor of "all you" magazine, always a pleasure to see you. >> thanks for having me. >> you know, can you imagine going out to start to do your marketing this weekend and then there's sticker shock, right. >> tremendous, almost 30%, the rise of the cost of the birdss that. has to do with an increase in terms of the feed for the birds, over like 56% in terms of feeding the birds.
7:41 am
so -- >> the prices for corn have gone up steadily in the last year. >> exactly. exactly. what this means your average 16-pound bird which now costs $1.05 per pound, you know, this year is 16.80. last year was $12.64 for the total purchase. that's really significant when you are looking at those numbers. >> yeah. do we have other kinds of choices, though? i mean, tell me a way to save money. there's got to be a way to save money. >> the way to do it, first combine your coupons. go online. a lot of the poultry companies like butterball have coupons you can combine with in-store sales. >> i like it. >> do that. also if you are having a smaller party with two to three people or so get a turkey breast, instead, a smaller portion, no waste and consider frozen over fresh, definitely more reasonable but give yourself four to five days for the birdies to thaw. which means you have to purchase it saturday or sunday, case in
7:42 am
point cost comparison in your shopping. >> the real way to defrost it is in the refrigerator, not in the zinc with the hot water. >> a last-ditch effort. >> not that i've ever been there. >> your hands are like sis cycles but can you save 50 cents doing the frozen versus fresh bird. >> what about changing. could you go so far as to change birds? >> consider a kosher turkey, a little more expensive as your standard but not as expensive as organic and heritage varieties. no kosher birds are presalted. a lot of people love the rich delicious bird. >> drew: don't have to brine it. >> he don't and they are really tasty. >> you are really brinking it this morning. how else can we save? talk about some of the items. the price on just about everything has gone up. >> the basic things like onions and sweet potatoes are up 20%. brace yourself for the pecans 41.3% increase in price.
7:43 am
the basic staples you need to make your table, the foundation of thanks giflg dinner. so, the key here is to really do your comparison shopping, looking for the reasonable prices and, you know, there are places that are even offering free birds, believe it or not. so, we found that at shop rite, if you spend $300 from mid-october to thanksgiving day they give you a free 21-pound bird. >> and if you can hum the lynyrd skynyrd song, i think i'll give it to you. >> i think you are doing it. >> why? >> because there is an increased consumption of pecans in china. >> of course. >> if anybody is financially in the straits this season go to united way or boys and girls club of america around the country, they are giving out free birds, as well. >> way to go. amy, thanks so much. >> thanks. >> up next, dave's still on the road. has he found his way home? we'll check in with him in just a little bit. you're watching "the early show" on cbs. with so many it's hard to see the difference.

7:49 am
beautiful thing dave said the proof this has really been about the journey, not the destination, as much as we looking forward to seeing you but is the journey you've made it along the way. >> nope. yep. making it here is totally secondary. i'm glad we are going to but the stories are incredible. see you in a little bit. >> we'll see you in a little bit.

what's in recipes. if you are inviting people to bring dishes, potluck style, know what's in them. and just be aware. it's awareness is key. and people i find anyway are so much more aware and considerate these days. when i was growing up i never heard of a kid growing of a kid with food allergies. jet at my daughter's school they make such an effort. >> everybody knows. >> now it's everywhere. >> we have to be aware because it is a very serious issue. >> you think food energies has getting worse? >> i do. some of these kids have air-borne allergies and can be very, very serious. >> thank goodness we are talking more like this morning. >> yes. >> i want to talk more about "the talk" you guys look like you are having so much fun ifnlts we are having a blast. you know, these women are so much fun, a lively bunch but i'm learning, i'm, you know, as a mom i'm getting information but from our guests. >> so am i. >> i'm entertained and i get to,

wow! >> we've got a great crowd on handing afng the reason a lot of folks are here is to welcome dave home. it's been a long and difficult week for dave price, beginning more than 4,000 miles away in anchorage, alaska and as he got stuck out west for a couple of
8:16 am
days it appeared there might -- really might not be a way home. but on wednesday, as he started pigging up coats, he picked up speed. all the way to cincinnati. a and after that, the final leg of his amazing journey home began. >> for the last seven days i've journeyed all across the country. working my way from one end of america to the other, trying to make my way home. but, on wednesday, in bozeman, montana, i received an e-mail that provided a new mission for my trip. i got the most touching letter just a few minutes ago. i had lost two coats along the way and that prompted an "early show" viewer to focus in on a theme. the importance of having a warm coat. he e-mailed me with an offer, $600 to start a one-man coat drive. but, accepting that business proposition changed the whole
8:17 am
tone of my trip. i began to hand out flyers asking people for coat donations. can i give you one now? >> you can. >> there's another one. >> yesterday morning in cincinnati, the generosity i had seen o a small scale continued to grow. >> there's people laying on the curb in this city and all across america. if that coat keeps them warm that, matters to me. >> in columbus, ohio, more of the same. >> look at this! and gloves. >> my rental car filled up quickly. next stop, wheeling, west virginia. [ cheering ] >> we're just raising awareness. so, if someone needs a coat in your community, they know they can get one. perhaps the most poignant moment of the week came at the very end. late last night in harrisburg, pennsylvania, 174 miles from home, i met the man who sent that e-mail. this is him. >> oh.
8:18 am
mike flanagan knows about taking chances. >> i'm so proud of you! >> mike's offer inspired me and, in turn, inspired many others. >> i gave $600, they would have bought 30 coats. i don't know how many coats are here. there's a couple hundred but i've had e-mails all day i've been asking people all over the country people are giving coats, which is great. >> mike says he's always believed that one person can make a difference. >> what's happened here struck a chord with you and it struck a chord with me. >> and with a lot of other people. >> and it's going to strike a chord with a lot of other people because the guy that doesn't have coat and is cold and gets it, he's just going to say, thank god i got a coat! >> and so it sometimes happen, you start down one road and suddenly you change direction. but, in the end, you end up in a better place than you had ever imagined. >> wow!
8:19 am
what a story. right? >> he got us yesterday, i think he got us again today, all of us. >> the only thing we forgot, the kleenex. dave, we are feeling like dave is in the neighborhood. right? >> where's our boy? >> all right! [ cheering ] >> yea! >> a high row's welcome, as he deserves. and he's got a lot of coats to unload this morning. [ cheering ] >> there he is. >> yea, dave, ooh! [ cheering ] >> nice job, buddy. >> you kept the best one for yourself. >> i like this weathered look, it works for you. >> oh, dave, you made it. >> it is weathered, all right. what an amazing -- it was an amazing trip and i wish i had the presence of mind and the energy now to regale you with
8:20 am
story after story of the time, but it was just a -- it was remarkable. >> you know, last year, your journey really turned into a saga. it had its ups and downs and everything else. you anticipate going out on a road again this year. i know were you so hungry to do it. what fed you the most when you were out there this time? >> two things. at the beginning of the trip, it was the game. it was, let's see if i can get back. let sees see if i can overcome the frustration. the second half of the trip was all about this mission. what you didn't see in that piece, one of those people who was speaking who donated a coat in cincinnati, he had recently lost his home to a fire and most of his possessions. and mike flanagan that, man who wrote that letter about second chances is a former attorney, who wound up in legal trouble and in prison and who dedicated the rest of his life to changing how he lived it. and all he said last night, as he was tearing up was, i want to do something good and i want to
8:21 am
make my children proud. and he did. everyone we met did. and you know what, no one owns a coat drive, guys. they are happening all over the country, right? no one owns a food drive. >> what happens now to all these coats you've collected? >> we are going to give them out. we are going to give them to people in charities in need. but, here's the deal. we don't need them mailed to us, we don't need a holiday to do this. give a coat in your own neighborhood, in your own community, that's all you need to do, quietly, the only reason we did this was to build awareness, to build awareness. >> we are so proud of you and i want you to know that we're not the only ones. i want to show you something. so, take a look at the monitor. >> surprise, dave! i'm here with your parents, larry and helene, very proud of what you've done because there are people facing enormous struggles each day, the performance of random acts of kindness is imperative for hope. now, dear son, clean up, have a bowl of chicken soup, take a nap
8:22 am
and do some good things! [ cheering ] >> i was implore in florida yesterday on another store and ran into them and they are so proud of you and she was so worried about you. helene, he's fine, more than fine. >> she's like you don't sound good, you don't look good. my dad did just what he did in that video, he just stayed quiet. >> that's why they've been together for so long. that makes their marriage work . >> this is was such a beautiful trip and, as much as i love being with you, i can't lie, i really love being on the road and meeting people all across the country from the great state of alaska through the west, into the rockies, the midwest, ohio valley and into the northeast. >> that first scene when you were out there and handing out those flyers and people were literally giving them the coats off of your back was just absolutely incredible. we'll have more with dave in a little bit. check out dave's journey from start to finish on our website

if you've ever had the opportunity to go to london, one of the places you absolutely have to go is westminster abbey. >> breathtaking. >> for, well not exactly this building but this is the place where for more than a thousand years kings and queens. >> have been crowned. >> exactly right. and so, you know, everybody from
8:31 am
jeffrey trausser to charles dickens is buried there. it's kind of the place. >> i'm going to a wedding there in the summer or spring. don't know exactly the date yet or the place. >> really? >> in london? >> they're old friends. [ laughter ] >> not! >> they wouldn't happen to be named kate and wills would they? >> catherine, actually. >> a lot of speculation, at st. paul's or westminster abbey. we'll check with a couple of our good friends in london. we've got amanda holden. >> i'll bet she is actually invited. >> look at that. we'll find out if she is on the list or not and see what other news we can gather on the royal wedding plans. >> also here this morning with us my favorite rock band of the moment onerepublic in the studio. i have loved them since they had apologized on their first album back in 2007.
8:32 am
they're here this morning to perform that one and also "secrets" number one on itunes on their rock chart for five months. >> good song. >> both. >> we can't wait to talk to them. >> they have a cello. >> which starts that song and so many others. >> looking forward to that but dave is doing a little recovery and allowed me to do one final check of the weather. here you have it. a storm system moving through the northwest bringing snow and rain. another stormy time with thoi shors moving into parts of the great lakes of the the sun, though, will shine brightly on the southeast and southern plains so keep the sunglasses handy. in the northeast it will be cool but pleasant with light winds and sunny skies to welcome
8:33 am
for your favorite weatherman just ahead but first harry. >> all right. we can find out as early today where and when the wedding between prince william and kate migdz ton will take place. royal speculation is running rampant. let's head across the pond where "early show" special contributor amanda hold den and royals expert neil sean are both standing by. good morning, everybody. >> 'morning. >> hi, harry. >> man today, first tell me, talk to me a little bit just about the buzz and how this whole royal engage minute has set the town on its ear. >> i think the whole country is so excited, especially today
8:34 am
because it's across all all of the papers and i think the government very soon will confirm we'll get a day off to have the wedding. so, everybody doesn't have to go to work, obviously that's a bonus. obviously, for the economy, it's going to bring in loads of tourists, lots more money. her ring, her engagement ring has already been copied. the dress that kate wore for her actual engagement interview has been copied by a supermarket over here and is retailing at just under $20. it's amazing. >> and you have the copy right there in your hands. hold it up again, we want to see it. >> yes. >> you can get this for 20 bucks? >> 20 bucks from tesco's, i think available online. the designer is -- it's gorgeous. it doesn't have the long sleeves but the same color and the lovely waist. there's a lady over here called phillipa leslie rumored to be
8:35 am
making her wedding dress, also one of our faces this morning. >> i want to get neil on for a second, he's across town at buckingham palace. do you have any even shreds of news you can share with us this morning? >> well, 'morning, harry. yes, i've got that blue dress back from amanda, i know what she's like around a supermarket. but what's more exciting here right now, how not just the economy but if you look like catherine middleton in evening land right now trying to find as many doubles, look-a-likes. we have at lof prince william looka-likes but not enough catherine middleton look-a-likes this is your chance to be very rich and, of course, very busy. so right now looking for something like that, you could be over there doing a big photo shoot. >> it is interesting. as you read through the tabs and as amanda is holding this dress, now available for $20, people want to copy everything all the way down to her hairstyle. amanda, let me ask you this,
8:36 am
will you now officially off the market, who becomes the bachelor -- who becomes the bachelor of choice in london and in the uk? >> well, it's funny, actually. i have been asking a few of the girls around and sadly for william, no one seems to be that sad that he's off the market, always harry the girls fancy more over here because harry is a bit naughtier, a bit edgier because he's got less responsibilities. i think william's always had to lead biff example. so, not too many tears. i could be kate's mum, don't you think, catherine's mum, a look-a-like for her? >> hmmm. i think you might have to get a dye job there. >> oh, yeah. yeah. maybe. >> neil, are the punters involved in terms of trying to figure out where the wedding is going to take place and is there
8:37 am
sentiment in the country about where it should take place? >> well, that's a really good question, harry. when you saw that paparazzi picture of kate emerging from westminster abbey, dressed in a white coat, so close we could pick her out, she'd been to the abbey, we can tell you, of course, she has looked at other venues, not actually having to choose, of course but i think for her she would definitely like -- certainly st. george's chapel but i think the public and world will demand it be at westminster abbey of course because of the spectacle, the way they do things so well, a world stage. she's going to be a world bride so why not do it there? >> thank you very much. amanda, a pleasure to see you, as always. we do appreciate it. >> thank you, harry. >> all right, doll. >> thank you. >> all right. take care. now, here's erica. >> harry, thanks. we've been telling you about the macy's believe campaign now in
8:38 am
full swing. here's how it works for every letter sent to santa at a macy's believe station the store will donate a dollar up to a million dollars to the "make a wish foundation" which, of course, grants wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions. before the latest letter count we bring in ib bra ham almanza, former recipient now a manager up to 24,000 "make a wish" volunteers across the country? this is an organization near and dear to my heart. you guys do such great work for people who aren't familiar about it, tell us what "make a wish" did for you. >> my wish was granted in 1999, to be in the middle of the ocean on the fourth of july on a cruise. this was absolutely amazing to go to the bahamas and bermuda, a great opportunity for us to reconnect as a family. "make a wish" encompasses the entire family. >> were you 15 years old, in a car accident. as a result, found out you had stage four cancer. later on your parents say doctors told us you had three months to live. here you are today. >> yeah, it's amazing.
8:39 am
just to see how far i've come and all the opportunities that i've had, you know, both my career, as well as just in life in general. i mean, it's really been provided through "make a wish" and "make a wish," it seems a wish that keeps on giving and it's the best possible thing. >> it is great and so important to point out, we talked about in the break, if you are scared to refer to someone saying that this child has a terminal illness, that's not the case, these are life-threatening conditions, not life-ending. >> exactly grant wishes for life-threatening conditions, which is the first thing people should say. that's the big misconception. the fact i'm here 11 years after my wish a true testament how powerful a wish can really be. >> we were grant some of those wishes this holiday season writing a letter to santa. bring it to mast y's and mail it in this mailbox and they donate a dollar? >> such an easy thing all the parents always writing letters for kids for santas during the holiday season, so are teachers it is such a great thing to pay it forward and take it to the stations at macy's.
8:40 am
the fact they are able to sit down and write it is amazing. >> 96,006 letters. they will donate up to a million. >> bring them in. the more letters we get the more wishes can be granted. mine was amazing. if we can share that with more and more kids, why not. >> thank you so much. >> so far, as we mentioned 96,006 letters, you can find out how to contribute on our website earlyshow.cbsnews.com. maggie? >> thanks, erica pop rock band one republic behind me burst onto the music scene in 2007 with the smash hit "spol joois" which shattered all records on top 40 radio and became the most played song of the year because it's awesome. the denver-based group is now finding new fans with this single "secrets" which has been the number one rock song on itunes since july. here to sing "secrets" for you from their current cd called
